Earlier this year I was at their concert when they were on tour and, watching/listening to them, I think you can't fully appreciate their music unless you play cello yourself - I mean, they've all done the academy of music and they're really-really professional...the things they play..pff... and they play them as if it was the easiest thing in the world, and they enjoy doing it so much... :D Ah, it's just great :wink:

Yep, seen them at Wacken once. Great show.
I might not be able to fully appreciate their playing since I don't play the cello, but I imagine it's like with guitar players. I play the guitar (lousyly, though), thus I'm amazed at some of the stuff guitarists do on stage.

Listening to the rain. It NEVER rains in Tucson in November. :shock:

I can only conclude that I am a rain god. :D

So that's why there is blue sky over some of England!

Was there a tinglingingling noise at any time to alert you to the fact you were a rain god? :lol:

Handel's Messiah, over and over and over and over... all three hours (ok, just ALMOST) It is a hard piece to jump into. I have a very good voice. This piece of music with all 53 parts, is so not "jump into happily" having Never heard the entire thing before. It's BAROQUE for small gods sakes. The group has a cd to help with learning the notes, no words tho. And, it is also played at a slower speed than the actual speed. I have been pounding this into my head for 5 weeks, and actually cried when I left practice today. I found a copy of it done by the London Philharmonic Orchestra and Choir, which helps in the annunciation of the words. These is one part which has 47 notes on the vowel sound e. 47!!! We have a tiny tenor section and aside from 10 of them who know it all inside out, the rest of us, (12 I think) feel overwhelmed. Some parts I have down pat aside from a little timing.

I am scared now, and trying to summon the strength to attend the last rehearsal before the gig. Running away to Tahiti never looked so good.
Aha! So, Bob's yer uncle... very clever.

I'm sure you'll be just fine Tina and will enjoy yourself immensely while doing it. Is there any chance of it appearing on You Tube at some point? :D

I'm listening to The Lucksmiths. God I love them. I wish they hadn't broken up. :(
